Today, Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor will put the final touch on his legendary NFL playing career. Taylor will leave the game with the sixth most sacks of all-time, finishing right behind New York Giants DE Michael Strahan with 139.5. Jason also recorded more than 770 tackles and forced 47 fumbles in 15 pro seasons. He was named to six Pro Bowls, won two Defensive Player of the Year Awards, was selected as an All-Pro five times and was a Dancing with the Stars runner-up! There were a few detours to Washington and New York later in his career, but 13 of the 15 year were spent playing in front of the fans in sunny Miami.
For majority of his career, Jason was also a member of Team Jordan, wearing various Player Exclusive cleats throughout the years. He started with the Air Jordan Retro 12 in 2003 and will finish wearing the BCT Mid and Air Jordan Retro 14 this season.
